French term or phrase: sincères
Hello,

could you help me with the adjective? The context is about the Tarot readings. The text:

Si les tarots sont souvent compliqués à interpréter, il sont *sincères*.

Thank you in advance!

  -> Thank you. I suppose that not many people understand the word "true"

agree  B D Finch: I'd use "true". Well, I wouldn't because I think the statement is utter nonsense, but that is how I'd translate it.// Call me a prejudiced science freak, but I think they divide into obvious charlatans and well camoflaged charlatans.
